The Guild had been able to pay for the renovation of the entire hos- pital bedding and supply large quantities of mackintosh sheeting, water-beds, water- pillows, etc. The hospital, with its 160 beds, and the Convalercent Home, with 20 beds, had been supplied with linen, and part of the staff uniform Lad been paid for. At the matron's request the Guild had given a wardrobe for the nurses' sick room, two wheel chair, an ambulance trolley, and three large food trolleys to take the dinners from the kitchens to the wards.
